ROUTE IN DE­TAIL

Motor Sport News - - Headline News -

Thurs­day Oc­to­ber 27. Shakedown re­mains in Clo­caenog for­est with the cer­e­mo­nial start and au­to­graph ses­sion mov­ing back to Eirias Park. En­try to the start is free for all. Fri­day Oc­to­ber 28. Day one starts with Dyf­nant re­turn­ing to the open­ing day for the first time since 2012. The big news here is that My­herin, Sweet Lamb and Hafren will all run in the op­po­site di­rec­tion from last sea­son. This will be the first time the crews get to drive down the hair­pins at the end of the My­herin test – and the first time Hafren and Sweet Lamb have run in that con­fig­u­ra­tion since 1995. Usual re­group in New­town splits the two loops.

Satur­day Oc­to­ber 29. Starts with re­turn­ing clas­sic, Pant­perthog, three miles north of Machyn­l­leth. This one is, how­ever, closed to spec­ta­tors – there’s sim­ply not enough room for park­ing and ac­cess roads. Dyfi and Garthein­iog are both back and all this loop of three runs ei­ther side of a Cor­ris re­group. The road back to Dee­side in­cludes a sin­gle pass of Aber­hir­nant be­fore the route crosses the bor­der for Chol­monde­ley Cas­tle, which re­places Chirk Cas­tle. The Cheshire test is very sim­i­lar in na­ture to Chirk: an asphalt stage run­ning through the grounds of a stately home, but it comes with eas­ier ac­cess and bet­ter park­ing fa­cil­i­ties. A re­group is planned af­ter the Chol­monde­ley stage, con­ve­niently lo­cated next to the spec­ta­tor area – the plan is for this to be­come an ad­di­tional au­to­graph ses­sion with the crews en­gag­ing with the fans. Sun­day Oc­to­ber 30. Brenig and Al­wen re­main from last year, but the day’s mileage is boosted by the in­clu­sion of Clo­caenog. The Brenig pow­er­stage is re­vised, with the end of the stage run­ning in the op­po­site di­rec­tion. The cars start from the fly­ing fin­ish and run along­side the lake be­fore turn­ing left into the woods, where they pick up last year’s route down to­wards the car­a­van park and onto the asphalt sec­tion. The fin­ish will be in front of the crowds as the cars come back up to­wards the lake. The fin­ish will be back in Mostyn Street, Llan­dudno.
